    How would you restore faded black denim?

    Thank you

      Hi John, the only way to do that is by dying them I’m afraid. Once the colour has washed out and faded, there is no way to get it back without re-dying the jeans. You can pick up some black jeans dye fairly cheap though!

      Hi! Black can be tough, so you can buy something like a white vinegar or colour sealant and put them in the wash with your jeans, it locks in colour. I’ve not personally done it myself as I try to avoid washing my black jeans for that reason, but I hear good things 🙂

Thanks for your comments =) I read & reply every one =)
